Just my quick 2 cents though... you're front left and right speakers are way too far from the TV to produce the best soundfield. But if you cant move them closer to the TV, then at least aim them better to the seating area...it seems to be aimed at a position in front of the sofa, instead of the sofa.

Any Harmony remote can be used to control the PS3 if:

(1) buy the PS3 adapter

(2) buy the Nyko gaming remote and just use the usb adapter.

(1) allows you to turn on/off using the harmony. (2) does not turn on PS3 but controls everything else.


btw, I thoroughly recommend getting any harmony remotes... i have 3 of them! (basement, living room, bedroom)

don't remember what the rears are. They are in the ceiling though, kind of like a salad bowl so you can direct them rather than them pointing straight down.


Love that floor and that ceiling...

It's from a company called BDI, look it up. They have tons of solutions for high media needs. And they all circulate air well and have easy access to the back. Have the same stand.

Not sure if an 82" is too big for that stand though, they might have a bigger one.

thanks! yea it doesn't work with the remote unless you buy an adapter(which I haven't). we watch our blurays through the player not the ps3. so for me to move 5 feet to turn it on isnt so horrible.

sucks that they haven't updated the remote to include Bluetooth yet. regardless it's still worth the $200 IMO, esp with the help tutorial to fix if something isn't working. now i don't get those annoying calls from my wife, insert whiney wife voice "hun, the tv won't turn on what's wrong? you need to come home to fix this". that not happening anymore is more than priceless.

here is my ecclectic old school meets modern system. the system was originally setup as an audio system and later I added the theater projector. the sound is unbelievable. all my audio collection is ripped to my mac uncompressed so there is no quality loss. video is played either through verizon fios or through bluray dvd player. the speakers are 20 years old and I am the original owner. the mac amp is 35 years old and its in pristine condition and you know they don't mak'em like these old macs anymore. its a tank weighing in at 100 lbs. later on I added the chanel island audio mono bloc digital amps to the setup for a combined 1kw total power output. the speaker cable are the size of a garden hose. my system has given me years of audio bliss and with the addition of the HD theater, well...who needs to go out for entertainment

panasonic 720p HD projector

Crappy iPhone pics. The rear surrounds are currently a bit close to the surrounds, but we're going to finish an additional area of the basement and dedicate it to the theater, so I didn't want to skimp on speakers now only to regret it later.

Different strokes for different folks. I like it. The room is very inviting in person, and I plan on keeping it as is, even though I didn't build the house.

dual TV

I couldn' t resist but i have to throw in my buddies set up. He has no clue i just took pics as a few friends are watching the Denver game. He has two 42s work independently, one is hooked up with dvd and other one is hooked up to Apple TV, each TV has their own cable box and can watch two games at ones. APPLE TV is the bomb! Both connected to the internet and all this is controlled by one remote control and all boxes are in his bedroom. infra red i think is what the system uses to read the remote control. best system ive seen for what all he can do under one control. even damn lights are control by the controller.

Unsure if this goes thru but doing it thru my iphone browser.
